On Friday, May 17, 2019, the Veterans Memorial Park Foundation of Pensacola will host the Marine Aviation Memorial Placement Ceremony for over 181 fallen Marines and Sailors of Marine Aviation from 2001 to 2018. During the ceremony, more than 150 inscribed granite bricks will be placed on the base plate underneath the Marine Aviation Memorial Bell Tower. Come join us and be part of the memorial event.
